A reverse mortgage is a special type of loan that enables individuals 62 or older to convert some of their home's equity into tax-free cash. Unlike traditional equity loans, no repayment is required until the home is no longer the principal residence. For more information, contact the National Reverse Mortgage Association at 1-202-939-1760 or visit their website at www.reversemortgage.org. Information packets may be obtained from FNMA Consumer Resource Center at 1-800-732-6643.
